Do not measure with the tire. Measure the rim only. The 19mm is about what I remember, 0.75". It's been several years since I bought the rims but I believe the measurements we came up with were offset of 0.75" and backspace of 4".

I got some Superlite 15x6 that were made for the Jensen-Healey. They were out of 15x7 otherwise I would have gotten those. The tires I got were 205/50x15. Almost the same height as the 185/70x13 tire.

The car definitely looks better with the wider rims and tires.

All right, I went to the car shed and measured the backspace of a rim. It is just a little over 4".
